Location: Rancho Mirage, California

Price: $2,995,000

Built in 1960 by architect Jack McCallum and recently rescued from demolition and renovated by H3K Design, the all-white-surfaces Rancho Mirage stunner lives—and frankly, thrives—among good company in the land of opulent Southern California Midcenturies (Palm Springs is only 20 minutes away). Originally designed for for Norwich Pharmaceutical CEO and Pepto-Bismol developer Mel Eaton, the Modernist retreat once hosted famous guests including Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz.

Configured in an H-shape, the gleaming property, dubbed Swan House, spreads out over 4,539 square feet and comprises four-and-half-baths, a living room and great room lined with walls of glass framing views of the original, glimmering Regency pool and desert vista, four spacious ensuite bedrooms, and media room. Shiny stone floors are found in the common areas, while plush carpeting is laid out in the rest of the house.

Outside, the roof overhang provides privacy and sun protection, while large open areas offer plenty of entertaining opportunities. A fire pit and spa round out the space. (Don’t forget the two fountains flanking the walkway up to the main entrance.) And whether you like it or not, the home is offered fully furnished. Located at 70418 Pecos Road, it’s asking $2,995,000 after a recent price cut.
